09-02-11, SCNL, Glen Coe - Winter Climbing

A thawing day today. Tori, Chris and I headed back to Stob Coire nan Lochan today. We climbed Ordinary Route IV, 5 on Summit Buttress. The snow was heavily saturated from last nights rain and freezing level above the summits. The day started dry but quickly heavy rain came in from 10am onwards till we got back to the van! Lots of wet avalanche debris was seen in Forked gully. Despite the wet conditions, the climbing and day was enjoyable, just goes to show you can have a good day when you don't expect it!
